SARASWATHY

Cardiothoracic Surgery CENTRE

Coronary bypass surgery is used to treat heart attacks or serious chest pain (Angina), breathing difficulty due to poor pumping of heart caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle.

Off-pump CABG (beating heart surgery; without stopping heart) is considered an advanced method of performing CABG.

 

Why should a doctor advice CABG:

  • Once significant blocks are diagnosed one should undergo CABG. The reasons are by restoring blood supply of heart:
  • You are relieved of agonising Chest Pain (Angina in various forms)
  • Prevent your heart muscles getting damaged (heart attack, weakening of muscles)
  • Restoration of health of damaged or poorly functioning muscles
  • Prevents sudden death due to heart attacks or arrhythmias (abnormal beating of heart)

 

Advantages of Beating Heart CABG:

  • Faster recovery
  • Better for renal patients, patients with respiratory problems or H/o stroke
  • Reduced incidence of wound infections

 

Common procedures done by the Cardio Vascular Thoracic Department are :

  • All heart operations
